Grade starts at John Deere incrementally from 5 till 12-13(Engineering Positions) with grade 5 being the lowest. In each grade bands a, b, c with a being the starting band and c the highest. Grade 8a usually given to senior lead engineers and scrum masters. Hope this helps. What is the pay package they are offering you?


Thank you JD2 it does helps, they offered 20LPA. Also if you could tell me what is the grade of Manager in John deere it will really help

Gread 8 is leadership(technical or Managiral).
20L is too low for this grade. You should have minimum 23L(starting in this grade) fixed and 3-4L variable. Try to negotiate. Total should be 26 to 28L.
